I give my 10 week old son a bath every night and sometimes in the morning. He loves the water and it also calms him at night. He usually after he is fed and bath he goes to sleep and sleep for at least 5 to 6 hours.

My two month old daughter takes a shower with me everyday. I just don't use soap all the time. I calms her enough that she falls asleep afterwards and I can get myself dressed and even do my makeup. LOL. She does not like the bath tub and we have fun in the shower

My baby girl is 8 weeks old, and we have been giving her a warm bath every night before bed since she was only 2 days old. She doesn't seem to get cold as we cover her in a hooded towel immediatly after we take her out of the bath. I find giving her a bath every night before bed actually helps her sleep better! .. Hope this helped :)

I give my daughter a bath everynight. Just make sure you dress her and maybe put a hat on her head along with wrapping her or swaddling her to keep her warm. And dont take her outside right away.

They say it is ok to give your baby a bath 2-3 times a week. If you bathe them more often just don't use soap b/c it can dry out their skin. I have added it to the bed time routine because it calms my son and we just play in the water the other days. I also do a lotion massage afterwards to retain moisture in his skin.

I just watched on the show The Dr.s a couple weeks ago that infants only need 2 baths a week since they arent crawling around or anything to get dirty and more than 2 a week can dry out there skin. Personally I just give my son a bath whenever i feel like giving him one sometimes its 4 - 5 times a week sometimes I only give 2.

I bathe my daughter who is 8 weeks old every other night. As long as she is dried off and bathed in warm water you shouldn't have any issues.
